Quick question. I see varietals named either Gesha or Geisha from Panama or Costa Rica. Is either term correct? Are they different varietals with similar names?

Thanks!

Should have googled a little more. It looks like it is coffee named "Geisha" of a varietal named "Gesha". Maybe to sexy it up? I think they should have left the varietal name.

I spend $30 on a pound of "Gesha"  I'm gonna roast it tomorrow.  Most expensive green I have ever purchased.  I thought Jamaica was expensive. Heard great things tho.

Good luck.

I've found you either love it or hate it. There is rarely an in between that it is just okay or even just good.

Personally, I don't care for it. It tastes too much like drinking week tea. (I've had it from more than one roaster, and even bought a bag to see what the fuss was. Nothing we could do to it made it drinkable to me. It was very expensive compost.)

 
The world needs more outstanding coffee.

So far I have just had it via espresso.  C roast and it's nice.  Not sure if it's worth the price I paid though.

They're both the same thing, just different spellings. The area the coffee was first grown in was a place in Ethiopia named Gesha or Geisha. No one really knows which is correct.
